Sabbath Rest – Always Good

We lost a good friend this week.  He slipped into Heaven unexpectedly from our perspective, but he was not unexpected by the Savior who greeted him.  We weep not for him for he is Home at last. But for his precious wife and his children and grandchildren, our hearts ache with their loss.  Our loss. And we weep with them. But even in our weeping, we do well to lean heavily into the arms of Jesus – for He is Always Good

Written and recorded by Andrew Peterson

Do You remember how Mary was grieving?
How You wept and she fell at Your feet?
If it’s true that You know what I’m feeling
Could it be that You’re weeping with me?

Arise, O Lord, and save me
There’s nowhere else to go

You’re always good, always good
Somehow this sorrow is shaping my heart like it should
And You’re always good, always good

Well it’s so hard to know what You’re doing
Why won’t You tell it all plain?
But You said You’d come back on the third day
And Peter missed it again and again

So maybe the answer surrounds us
But we don’t have eyes to see

That You’re always good, always good
This heartache is moving me closer than joy ever could
And You’re always good

My God, my God, be near me
There’s nowhere else to go
And Lord, if You can hear me
Please help Your child to know

That You’re always good, always good
As we try to believe what is not meant to be understood
Will You help us to trust Your intentions for us are still good
‘Cause You laid down Your life
And You suffered like I never could

You’re always good, always good
You’re always good, always good
